SALT LAKE CITY — While everyone counts down the last few days before school is back in session, Utahns are also counting down the days until wildfire season is over.
This week, smoke from fires in both Utah and California caused the air to fill with smoke, at times making people across the Wasatch Front feel like they were at a campfire.
While the smoky air is certainly unhealthy, it also creates some decent photo opportunities. This week's user-submitted gallery is filled with photos of the unusual, smoky sunsets and sunrises that are brought on by weeks of wildfire smoke.
We also have a few photos sent in by Utahns who witnessed breaking news happening, including photos of the scene after a pilot crashed a small plane into his home early Monday morning.
Browse the gallery to see more of the scenes captured by Utahns. And as this smoky, fiery season winds down, send us your back-to-school photos so we can feature them on KSL.com and on social media.
